Oh yeah this is going to be great. The Borat trailer is pretty much a rip-off of the U.K. only special called "Best of Borat" although the scene where he kisses his sister was much expanded: "This is my wife, this is my mistress, this is my girlfriend, this is my other girlfriend, this is my sister" Where in each statement his is with a different woman (or young girl in the case of his sister).
UPDATE: So I'm reading through the message board on IMDB and I came across a post [bugmenot registration] from a frat guy who was duped into being in the movie. He wasn't sure if he was in it or not, but then people who have seen the screening chimed in, and oh boy is he in it! Apparently Borat tells them about a game in Khasakstan where they put some cheese up their "khrum" and then let a mouse crawl in, and this guys says he would do it. Too funny... I can't wait for this movie to come out.
This weekend I went on one of my weekly urban photo safaris, this time I went through the lovely uninhabited city of Vernon. For those of you who don't know, there are no residences in Vernon at all, just factories, railways and warehouses, which recently has made for some interesting election disputes. I didn't get hasseled anywhere in Vernon by power hungry security guards, but when I first set up the Mamiya to shoot the Amtrak train washing station, I was accosted by a golf cart riding security guard who threatened to take away my equipment because I was trespassing. I understand that if I am trespassing I have to leave, no problem there, although the area wasn't clearly marked as private property, but threatening to take my camera is not cool. It turned out ok because he decided that I wasn't "one of those guys" which I will assume he meant terrorists, but he also added that you could never be too sure. He was nice enough to give me a ride in the golf cart to my car, but I think his motivation there was to get my license plate number. You can check out the rest of my series of HDR shots.
